Challenge

Sankar considered upgrading to SAP S/4 HANA for its business. Sankar was in the process of expanding business operations across India. Implementing robust technology became need of the hour. Sankar realized the priority, they invited SAP, Microsoft, & ORACLE for evaluation. They finally decided to upgrade their existing SAP landscape to the latest version 1610 of SAP S/4 HANA to be deployed across 7 companies and 9 plants. Considering that legacy SAP systems were on premise deployment, deploying S/4 HANA on premise was the first thing on Sankar's mind. But Sankar, being an exponentially growing mid enterprise, huge CAPEX demands of on premise S/4 HANA infrastructure deployment wasn't the practical & correct business decision. It was not reasonable to deploy full-fledged SAP S/4 HANA infrastructure right from capital intensive hardware, OS & other supporting software, storage, backup, etc. Being a non-IT enterprise, lack of technical expertise is a natural phenomenon. Sankar certainly felt the need for technology consultation to plan the roadmap of SAP/S4 HANA implementation better. In fact, Sankar wished for sincere hand-holding throughout its journey of SAP S/4 HANA with full-time technical support to ensure the business is up and running. Based on core requirements of cost and expertise, Sankar made the decision to move on cloud and find a Cloud Infrastructure Partner with the best skill-sets.
